I cannot get any application that I run to control the volume. I get sound but
am not able to adust the volume level. So far the following apps have shown
Noatun (no sound at all so may be different issue)
I am running FreeBSD 5.4/KDE 3.2.4 with a Sound Blaster Live! sound card.
pcm0: <Creative EMU10K1> at io 0xb800 irq 11 kld snd_emu10k1 (4p/2r/4v
channels duplex default)
so the card is recognized. I have adjusted the virtual channels in sysctl.conf
and the sndstat shows there are 4v chanels.
I have both esound and arts. Thought this may be an issue but both are
dependencies of KDE-Multimedia
So far I have tried the following:
1) Updating ports and ran portmanager. No effect.
2) Changed KControl->Sound System to use the following in all combinations:
3) Tried OSS drivers instead of FreeBSD native. Could not initialize the card.
4) Rebuilt both esound and arts. No effect
I have googled this yet cannot find any post with similar issue (except one in
which the onboard card was not deactivated. I do not have an onboard).
The only other thing I could think of is to update the whole system in
buildworld. Not really excited about this option as everything else is
working great (don't want to mess with it). I use this as my primary desktop
so I don't want to be down for that long.
Anyone have any ideas or a direction to point me in?
Thanks in advance,
